Bing keeps creating hundreds of bookmarks, as does Microsoft suggested sites in my bookmarks folder.

This is not a virus located on my computer. What it is is a huge number of bookmarks that is like bookmarking the bing site hundreds of times. It is on firefoxe's server because which ever computer I accessed fire from it was in the bookmarks. I did manage to delete them and backup the clean bookmarks file. What also seemed to accompany it was a microsoft suggested sites and web page. These were also deleted. I am curious if anyone knows the source of the pollution into bookmarks file or the bookmarks themselves. I want to prevent this from happening again. These type of fixes take my time away from valuable work. I simply called it a virus because it blocked up the bookmarks and reflected my irritation with Bing and Microsoft from causing this to happen.

[v57+] Places Maintenance is built into Firefox.

Type about:support<enter> in the address bar.

You will find Places Database near the bottom. Press the Verify Integrity button.

When done, copy and post the results here.


I also recommend; You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
